Debt Settler was winning for the second time here in a fortnight when successful over course and distance on his latest outing. Now 14lb higher than the first of those victories, he may find the less-exposed PUSHKIN MUSEUM too good. The latter had a subsequent winner back in fourth when opening his account at Lingfield and is taken follow up on his handicap debut. Kodafine has a bit to find with Debt Settler on earlier running while Green Music is upped in class off a higher mark after scoring here last week.
